Everton: Mohamed Bayo could be Lampard’s own Tammy Abraham

Everton have been linked with Clement Foot striker Mohamed Bayo recently and the 24-year-old could be an excellent addition to Frank Lampard’s side at Goodison Park.

What’s the word?

According to French news outlet Foot Mercato, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham are all interested in signing the 24-year-old this summer after his impressive performances in Ligue 1 last season.

The Guinea international would reportedly be available for as little as £12m and given that the Toffees have already lost Richarlison in this transfer window, signing a replacement striker should be a priority for Lampard this summer.

Lampard’s next Abraham?

Last season saw Bayo contribute an impressive 14 goals and five assists in France’s top-flight, with his performances key as Les Lanciers staved off relegation back to Ligue 2.

He was also vital in the previous season as they won promotion, hitting 22 goals and seven assists in 38 appearances, so clearly doesn’t lack confidence in front of goal.

According to FbRef, Tammy Abraham is the sixth-most similar player to Bayo in terms of style of play, and if he can perform anything like the Roma man has in recent seasons, he would surely be a welcome addition in Merseyside.

Abraham is well-known to Lampard, having hit 29 goals in 72 appearances under him during his time at Stamford Bridge. The England international was deemed surplus to requirements after Lampard’s departure but has gone on to seriously impress at Roma, hitting 27 goals in his debut season in Italy.

This has led the Serie A side to reportedly put a £100m price tag on Abraham to deter interested sides this summer, and while it is difficult to predict whether Bayo’s career will follow a similar trajectory, it makes his £12m price tag look very attractive from the Toffees’ point of view.

Therefore, considering Everton’s need for a striker, Lampard should definitely consider bringing the “powerful” Bayo to Goodison Park this summer.
